The MotoGP™ Qualification Challenge will be a "Time Attack" session where
you will have the chance to compete on a particular track, without any opponents,
in order to set the best possible time. During the Challenge period there is
no limit to how many timed laps you make on the selected circuit.
The Online Challenges will actually be comprised of two phases: the first phase where the player has to gain access to the ranked event (Red Bull Rookies Cup, Moto3™ and Moto2™) and the second phase which is the actual “time attack” (MotoGP™) where the times are recorded and ranked.
There will be a total of six Online Challenges.
There’ll be twelve gamers qualify per challenge with six from Europe
(2 from PS4, 2 from Xbox One and 2 from PC) and six from the rest of the world
(2 from PS4, 2 from Xbox One and 2 from PC).
In total, 36 gamers from Europe and 36 from the rest of the world make through to the Pro Draft.
Second step, the Pro Draft, will be open to gamers who have proceeded from the Online Challenges
and will be disputed in time attack mode but instead of one flying lap,
the time is set from a run of three laps.
During the first step of the Pro Draft, the Regional Selection, 72 gamers will compete by world regions (EU and Rest of the World) to be one of the 2019 MotoGP™ eSport riders. Each gamer will have to compete with the platform with which it has been classified (PS4, Xbox One or PC).
Rest of the
The fastest nine from Europe, comprising of three from each console,
and the fastest three from the rest of the world, one per console,
will then qualify for the Global Series.
Once the 12 riders have been selected, one last challenge, held on PC, will take place in order to determine which MotoGP™ team each rider will represent. The fastest rider will choose team he wants to represent first, followed by second fastest and so on.
The third and final stage of the MotoGP™ eSport Championship 2019 is the Global Series and it is made up of a six-race championship, held onsite at three different locations.
All races will be held on PC but every gamer will be
able to play with their preferred controller.
The Global Series shall determine the ultimate winners of the MotoGP™ eSport Championship according to the following Rider’s Championship Points & Events. You can follow all the action on selected TV Broadcasters and Digital Channels.
